One-of-a-Kind Baseball Glove Artwork Featuring the Great Home Run King Babe Ruth
On this 100% Hand-painted glove artwork, The Babe looks out from a carefully rendered, detailed portrait on the inside thumb accompanied by a large decorative facsimile of his famous signature.
While on the back, Ruth is depicted at bat surrounded by stats and highlights of his famed career, all captured on a vintage "Trapper" style glove.

The portrait in the glove pocket is about 3.5 inches high, slightly larger than a baseball.
On the backside of the glove's golden colored web and thumb, Ruth is depicted in his famous batting pose, just having swatted another long ball out of Yankee Stadium.
Highlighting Amazing Feats from The Babe's Career
Ruth's "Sultan of Swat" and "The Bambino" nicknames are painted to evoke typefaces reminiscent of the 20's and 30's. In addition, career statistics and milestones of Babe Ruth's career, like his 714 home runs and winning trips to the World Series, are highlighted around the glove set amongst a backdrop of baseball banners and pennants.

Ordinary Glove Made Extraordinary
|"Trapper" Style Glove, before Painting|
The shape, creases, leather wear and color, and type of glove influences the choices I make when creating a painted glove. In this case, the cowhide leather mitt made in Japan and touting a "Grip-Tite Pocket" has soft, supple leather and shows normal wear. The stitching and seams and piping are in good condition. It feels comfortable to wear and if it didn't have a painting on it, would be ideal to play catch with.
Admittedly, since Ruth was a lefty, a glove for the right hand would have probably been more fitting.
All-Star Materials for Top Quality Results
Like a slugger picking out a favorite bat to head up to the plate with, I've had a few decades of experience with various paints and have settled on Golden Acrylics and Liquitex Professional Acrylic Artist Colors as my medium of choice. The consistent color and durability of these paints holds up to the demands of exacting color mixing and detailed brushwork on the glove. These paints were selected for their compatibility with painting on leather and long lasting quality.
Additionally, I've used Golden Artist Colors Polymer Matte Varnish to protect the painted portions of this glove artwork. This varnish incorporates a system of Ultraviolet filters and Light Stabilizers (UVLS) to shields the artwork from UV damage.
